Normally, a New Yorker's only worry about a rainy day is focusing on playing "Minesweeper" with the countless bottomless puddles throughout city streets. However, on May 8, heavy rain in the Northeast United States caused flash flooding in Brooklyn and parts of the New York metropolitan area. Staten Island Railway service was disrupted as well. Check out some of these photos from Twitter of all angles of the flooding in New York City.
